It looks like an award-winning New Hampshire Restaurant and meat market is coming to the Boston area--and it will apparently be moving into an iconic space north of the city.
According to a Facebook post from the dining spot, the Tuckaway Tavern & Butchery in Raymond is planning to come to the former Hilltop Steak House space on Route 1 in Saugus, with the post showing a picture of the legendary cactus sign and another of the space itself and saying "Breaking Some Ground on Some Groundbreaking News." It is not yet known whether this would be a second location of the Tuckaway or if it may be have a different name; as soon as we find out more, we will post an update here.
The Tuckaway Tavern & Butchery is a restaurant, bar, and meat market known for its rustic atmosphere and high-quality meats; the place has received a number of awards since opening in 2012, including New Hampshire Magazine giving it best steak tips (2012), best new restaurant (2013), best butcher shop (2014 and 2015, and best lobster roll deal (2015), according to a page on the restaurant's site.
The Hilltop Steak House closed in October of 2013 after more than 50 years in business, while its butcher shop in Weymouth closed late last year.
